State Department: Bosnia - Herzegovina - Travel Warning, July 30, 1999

Bosnia - Herzegovina - Travel Warning
July 30, 1999

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the potential danger of travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina. From March to June, members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) undertook military action against neighboring Serbia and Montenegro, increasing the possibility for retaliation against U.S. citizens in Bosnia and Herzegovina, particularly in the Republika Srpska entity. Americans in Bosnia and Herzegovina, particularly in the Republika Srpska entity, are urged to avoid crowds and demonstrations, keep a low profile, and stay alert for changes in the security situation.

The war in Bosnia and Herzegovina was halted by the Dayton Peace Accords in November 1995. However, there are still risks from occasional localized political violence, land mines, unexploded ordnance, and carjackings. As many as one million land mines are still scattered throughout the country, and visitors are advised to remain on well- trafficked surfaces and roadways. There are also occasional flare-ups of violence, sometimes linked to protests over the return of displaced persons and arrests of war criminals.

U.S. citizens in Bosnia and Herzegovina are urged to contact the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo to register and to obtain updated information on travel and security within Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Consular Section is located at Ali Pasina 43, tel. (387)(71)445-700, fax (387)(71) 659-722.

This supersedes the Travel Warning on Bosnia and Herzegovina dated March 26, 1999 to update the security situation following cessation of NATO military action in neighboring Serbia and Montenegro.
